Title:"Brain mechanisms of time perception " 

Abstract:
Time and space are fundamental properties of our perception and action. While the neural basis of spatial processing has been studied extensively, our current understanding of the neural representation of time is still limited. Recent psychophysical and neurophysiological studies demonstrated that some forms of temporal information are represented by population coding mechanisms. In this talk, I will present our recent neuroimaging and psychophysical studies pertaining to the neural representations of durations, and show how these representations relate to our subjective experience of time.

Title:"Automatic facial mimicry and development of social cognition " 

Abstract: 
 We often spontaneously and unconsciously match facial expressions to those of others, which is referred to as facial mimicry. Although this behavior appears fundamental to our social reciprocity, little is known about its developmental process. In this talk, I will present two studies that examined when and how the facial mimicry develops, and how it plays roles on development of higher level social cognition.
